I love everything about Painting with a Twist! I have been Manager and Artist for over 3 years with PWAT. Everyone leaves our classes happy and with a beautiful piece of artwork they are proud of.
I believe everyone should reach their goals & be driven by their dreams, uncover one's gifts & passions and link them to the practical needs of the world... being in the right place & making the best use of one's talent is where we can all find true Happiness!! I love the culture here at Painting with a Twist and love that it’s almost the only place you can go where people will put phones away, let go and be in the moment.
I grew up in Southlake, spend 15 years in Dallas, then on to Austin in 2017. I hold a Fine Arts Degree and a background doing custom painting, faux finishes, murals, gold leaf an design in hotels and luxury houses. I am a licensed hairstylist and came from Managing the Richardson Painting with a Twist studio prior to moving to Austin.
My true passion is acrylics on canvas, beautifully blending hard & soft mediums with a fresh, out of the box style. My Art is Love made Visible. I have been selling my own art for 15+ years.
Sometimes painting can be my escape when things aren't fitting just right just in life but when I paint I feel at home. My favorite is a sunny day when I can bring a canvas outside & paint all day just creating & letting the ideas flow out of my brush. I love to use different textures & styles when I paint so there is a piece for everyone to enjoy. We all spend our lives in anticipations, in determining to be vastly happy at some period when we have more time, but the only time we have is here and now.
I am optimistic, glad no matter what because life is to short to waste a minute being anything but happy. Smile often! Find beauty in unlikely places. I love my life & see every day as a blessing. I believe in true love & I surround myself with kind hearted people who drive me to be the best person I can be. My parents, brothers, niece’s and dog Jager are an amazing inspiration to me and I try to make them proud every day.
I have been commissioning and selling my original art work for the last 15 years, I am the resident artist at Vitamin and have pop up shows around Austin and Dallas.

I am originally from North Texas but I have claimed Austin as my home for the last 5 years. I have a BFA and MA in Art Education. I am also a working musician in Austin and have been teaching visual art since 2009. I tour around Texas often and around other parts of the US every year. I love cats, tarot cards, and yoga.
I was born in Schweinfurt, Germany and moved to America when I was 6 years old. Ever since I was little I’ve always been interested in art. Drawing and crafts were my main focus, and painting came a few years later. Although at first I wasn’t too into painting, once I started working at Painting With a Twist in my hometown I really have gotten to enjoy it! I’m also a student at UT so when I’m not painting I’m studying or cranking out some embroidery pieces that I do on the side.
Born and raised in Austin TX, I have been in love with visual arts since I was 4 years old. Acrylics, oils, and watercolor are my favorite traditional mediums and I am currently creating art with digital tools. When I am not making art I enjoy sewing, cooking and playing with my dogs. I believe that every person holds creativity and the hardest step is picking up the paintbrush. Let your creativity run wild and you will impress yourself!
Greyson was born in North Carolina and lived in Colorado for most of his early years. He moved to Texas about 10 years ago and started painting about 5 years ago. He enjoys painting in oils and acrylics, and his favorite thing to do in his off time paint portraits. He thoroughly enjoys teaching people to paint and showing them that it is not as hard as it may seem and is very enjoyable!
Sonya is a mother of 3 and grandmother to one grandson. she is new to Austin but not new to Painting with a Twist as she worked at one in West Texas. She works in accounting by day and artist by night! She has always loved art growing up and it stuck with her through the years whether it was decorating for celebrations or painting a picture for a friend! She finds joy in creating all kinds of art but one of her favorites is oil painting!
